The questionnaire assesses the basic, biologically determined dimensions of personality which characterise the formal aspects of behaviour.

DESCRIPTION: A self-report questionnaire. It consists of 120 items in the form of statements to which the subject responds YES or NO. The items are grouped into six scales: Briskness, Perseveration, Sensory Sensitivity, Emotional Reactivity, Endurance, and Activity. The Regulative Theory of Temperament elaborated by J. Strelau provides the theoretical framework for the FCT-KZ. The data collected during construction of the questionnaire suggest that the results are relatively independent of education and verbal skills.

RELIABILITY: Satisfactory internal consistency for all six scales.

VALIDITY: Assessed e.g. on a basis of the connection  of the questionnaire score with selected psychophysiological indices and scores of other questionnaires or tests - examining temperament, personality, and cognitive abilities.

NORMS: Standard nine, developed after examining a sample of above 4000 persons, presented for six age groups (15 - 19, 20 - 29, 30 - 39, 40 - 49, 50 – 59, and  60 - 80), separately for men and women.

APPLICATIONS: Job counseling, educational counseling, scientific and clinical research.
